Penn State graduate Jeanne Kabulis (Ph.D. ’99) switches careers and finds that the skills she developed from her studies in French studies have prepared her well for a career in law.
A French scholar with a Ph.D. in French literature and civilization, Kabulis draws from her background as a linguist, researcher, and author when addressing legal issues.
“I have an extensive background in two foreign languages, experience with the target cultures, and textual interpretation that I put to good use whenever I interact with a client, construe a statute, or develop an argument,” says Kabulis. “My identity as teacher and researcher remains inseverable from my identity as lawyer and constantly informs my thought processes.”
